Otherwise, much the same, with November moths, barred sallows, beaded chestnuts and common marbled carpets being taken. A silver y and a Blair's shoulder knot were found on the 19th.
Still some moths that I have taken each autumn over the last few years that have not arrived yet. Most obvious is the lack of any merveille de jour and black rustic.
In all, I have now trapped 3570 moths of 326 species in the garden this year, making it the best yet. Certainly not going to get to the target of 4000 moths of 350 species.
